Margo and Adrian are both exceptionally buff, physical people who keep in shape through vigorous exercise. They seem well-suited to each other, and their conversations sparkled. The action scenes and sex scenes are almost equally intense though I admit to having difficulty accepting that Adrian could be a virgin at the ripe old age of twenty-four. Possible, sure, but his innate skill in lovemaking made his claim seem improbable to me. That niggling point aside, I enjoyed the chemistry between the pair. I loved the setting for this story, too. What better place for romance and adventure than on a vessel in the Virgin Islands? I do have one last complaint. I was not overly thrilled with the ending. It felt too rushed for me. Even though many questions still remain, such as how this couple's future will eventually play out, and will the Caldwell sisters discover the truth of their father's whereabouts, this tale is a fun, light suspense that is engaging and fast-paced.
Santa Fe Police Detective Margo Caldwell needs a vacation, but the wild goose chase her mother’s death triggers isn’t quite what she had in mind. Margo and her sisters must locate their father, or the Caldwell estate will remain unsettled—and they’ll never know why their father didn’t return from the Gulf War.
Pursuing a lead, Margo heads to the Virgin Islands in search of Zach Caldwell. To navigate the waters of the Caribbean, she needs a boat and a captain. Too bad Captain Adrian Prince, with his mesmerizing muscles and wicked grin, may be gunrunner.
Adrian takes Margo on his delivery route to small islands near St. Thomas that hide more than wildlife, booze, and sexy boaters. On a remote, mangrove-ridden patch of sand, they find gun-toting Zach Caldwell. When their mission turns deadly, Margo must save Adrian’s life—and her own—even if she loses her heart in the process.
